    they never compromise when they hold power. ask anyone in any neighborhood what happens when the haredi demography takes the majority. look at all the governments where haredim held the swing vote. all of a sudden this poor "weak" sector needs to be coddled and protected. this is nonsense. for their good and ours we must use this window to make the changes needed to save the general society as a liberal democracy as well as the haredi society from permanent endemic poverty and illiteracy. that means a gradual program of full army service (a la Lapid's proposals) this means gradually removing payments for not working to healthy work age people. this means removing payments to schools which do not teach their children basic skills and core curriculum. this means civil marriage for those citizens who want it (freedom and personal liberty trumps rav Amar's stated goal of protecting the Jewish "seed").
